I went and added the 'Spanish' to the language bar, for Spanish accents. But I can't get the keyboard to function, as in the said instruction, to get the letters with the accent marks or the tildes. At times it works, but only for certain characters.

 

Inquiring if anyone knows anything pertaining getting the Span lang keyboard to print the characters?

 

i already know about the ''character map"

 

Or is there an update or download from Microsoft that is needed?

 

Thanks.ahead of time.

 

Jeff

Which version of Windows? And do you mean that you are trying to install/switch to the Spanish language version?

The reason that I ask is that most versions of Windows are limited to ONE language "pack"/install. So, if you are trying to do it by installing/activating a second language, then you will need the right version of Windows for that.

For example, if you are running Windows 7, then I believe only the Enterprise and Ultimate versions support multiple languages.

smax013,

Thanks for getting back. I have resolved the issue by adding the Span keyboard & use the 'on screen keyboard' as a map. I still use character map for some symbols, but for typing in Spanish it takes a lot of time, picking from it. It made more sense to have access to the Span keyboard.
It wasn't as I thought it would be, but this method works fine.

Thanks,

Jeff
